With Delve right around the corner, many of you are already planning the perfect character for tackling the challenges hidden deep below the surface. Today we're going to throw a wrench in your plans by showcasing a brand new channeled bow skill -- the first of its kind -- called Scourge Arrow.
At its core, Scourge Arrow fires a wide, piercing arrow. Like other channeled skills, it deals more damage the longer you channel it, although it does nothing until it is released. Once released, the arrow leaves a trail of spores in its wake that explode after a delay, firing thorn arrows in a nova.
The number of spore pods Scourge Arrow creates depends on how many stages you built up while channeling the skill. It creates one spore pod per stage, up to a maximum of 5 stages, meaning a fully-charged Scourge Arrow will fire a lot of projectiles.
Sources of extra arrows and projectiles add arrows to the spore pods rather than the initial shot, which makes your fully-charged Spore Shot that much more destructive. The Thorn Arrows have a limited range, but that range is increased by sources of increased projectile speed.
Scourge Arrow converts 60% of your Physical damage to Chaos, making it a strong pick for builds that want to capitalise on the upcoming changes to Poison passive skills, the changes to the Pathfinder Ascendancy, and the new support gem for Chaos-based attacks, Withering Touch, all of which are planned to launch alongside the Delve expansion.
